Hello,guys,How are you?
Happy Easter day to all of you in advance!:)

Kizer has Escort for now!
A robust and nimble EDC folder,the ESCORT will accompany you on every step of the way.
Hidden with the tip up/down deep carry pocket clip and a reserved appearance,the ESCORT may be subdued in its looks but will astound in its performance.

This is one very nice folder. I love that handle too. The blade is a given.

I've been watching the normal vendors for this one. Constantly checking new arrivals so I don't miss the first batch!

Any update on this release? I'm checking the normal sellers multiple times a day so I don't miss out and still no one has any in stock.

Nice...Will there be a Vanguard version of this knife??? Would like to see a Stonewashed or Satin blade also. :)

It is possible. Kizer is looking for more Vanguard designs and we are working through some designs specifically for Vanguard. We will see pretty soon, I would think.

Just received my Escort... Nice knife, but it has a really weak detent. Barely flips and I can shake the blade out of the handle. Anyone else get one yet? How's your detent?

I think my detent is perfect. I've tried shaking it out and can't get it to. It definitely flips better after a few days of flipping. I like that I can open the blade slowly by pinching the fuller and using two hands. Try that with a zt! Impossible on my zt 0909! I was flipping the Escort while laying down today and it flipped perfectly from every angle! Really really love this blade!

Dirk, Thanks for an awesome first Kizer!

My only complaint with Kizer has been a couple of weak detents, although I don't have an Escort (yet). I guess it can happen with any knife. You might want to contact your retailer and see about swapping it for another one?

Inconsistent detents is my biggest worry about Kizer; I have an Intrepid with a perfect detent, and an I.F.T-L that has weaker blade retention and is a light-switch only flipper.

I just got my Escort today and I love it! The knife has awesome ergos, flip great and locks solidly. It's gonna spend a lot of time in my pocket. Really nice design and execution Dirk and Kizer.

I'd love this knife with a stonewashed blade and a carbon fiber presentation-side scale! **wink-wink, nudge-nudge**

First off, Thank you! I think Kizer really did a great job on the Escort!:cool:

Second, I have been talking to Kizer about offering multiple finishes. They seemed to like the idea but, haven't confirmed if they are moving forward. We should know soon. As far as a CF scale, I think that look good! With enough talk, they might start offering limited customization on certain models.
